I, Lovers (This Week’s Movies)


Margot Robbie: I, Tonya (courtesy Neon)

Links to my reviews published this week in the Herald and Seattle Weekly, and etc.

I, Tonya. “This is not complexity, this is trying to have it both ways.” (Herald link here.)

I wrote a very brief appreciation of Azazel Jacobs’ The Lovers for Film Comment‘s year-end issue; it’s online here. I only wish I’d mentioned Mandy Hoffman’s music.

Also a long piece for the online Film Comment: An interview with cinematographer Sam Levy, the DP of Kelly Reichardt’s Wendy and Lucy, three Noah Baumbach films, and Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird, a movie that will get him a lot of work. I interviewed Levy at the Camerimage Film Festival in Bydgoszcz, Poland, in November, and we got into some nitty-gritty about what a cinematographer does (including a beaut of a story about an early shot in Wendy and Lucy). Read it here.
